    Ok I was wondering anyone has ordered barred rocks, polish, cochins, or mille fleur d'Uccles from Sand Hill Preservation and if so, if you could pretty place post pictures of them or tell me if they really are as close to standard as everyone says? Thanks!

    I've not ordered from them before but, if I get get some Blue and Black Orps from "speckledhen" and "bamachicken" this spring I may order a few just for different bloodlines.

    I have...three times and got alot of assortments, mostly Polish birds. However I got rid of alot of them before I can take pictures of them at full maturity. Many of them are nice but not of greatest show quality. A little better than the regular hatcheries.

    I got some St Cochins in an assortment from them a few years ago. They were very nice birds, HUGE, and much better feather than ones I had ordered from McMurray. I think Sandhill has got it right, maybe you won't get any champions, but you aren't going to get any mutt half-breeds either.

    No, I don't. I sold off all my birds before I headed off to college in 2003, and I just got back into them again about a year or so ago. [​IMG] Sorry But Cochins aren't the only thing I got from them, and I was happy with all the birds. I think I'm going to order some St Ameraucana from them this year.
